Kids today are surrounded by technology. In a digital age of iPads, tablets and e-readers they absorb knowledge via digital downloads. Roo is quite at home doing her phonics and learning on her iPad and my general rule of thumb is that I don’t mind her using the iPad if there’s a good mix of educational -v- fun games. So when we were asked to review the new APPen learning app with stylus on our iPad I was intrigued to see if this would help Roo with her pen control.
So what is APPen?
APPen is a rather clever piece of kit. To use APPen simply plug into the headphone jack (in our case on our iPad) it’s as easy as that, and then the app can be downloaded via either the Apple or Android store and best of all it is free. The app can be used with or without the pen but it works better with it, the only issue is that plugging into the headphone jack you do lose the sound on whatever you are using the pen with. To begin with you create a profile for whoever is using it and you can add a photo, put in the age and of course name.
